The sessions bring together service users, carers and staff from statutory and voluntary organisations to talk about issues that affect people with mental health problems and provides vital feedback to monitor and improve services in Croydon. 

In the 2020 Community and Connection grants programmeMaudsley Charity awarded Hear Us additional funding to support their Welfare Surgeries 

The project encourages people to ‘do it for themselves’ where they can, using peer support and welfare surgeries, so they can grow in self-confidence and skills to maintain their health and well-being.  The funding will enable welfare surgeries to tackle immediate crisis, empower beneficiaries to become less socially isolated and support skills development so people can reach their goals.
